Have any of you delayed baby's first bath to soak up the benefits of vernix?

Neither of our hospitals even offered a bath during our stay as far as I know, and we never got around to it until the babies were about a week-week and a half. I never noticed a smell good or bad to be honest! After a while they smell like breastmilk and barf if you ask me, hah
